Developed from the brocade weaving women's group, in 2019 the brocade weaving village in De Thang village, Che Cu Nha commune, was recognised with 35 members responsible for preserving the traditional craft and creating jobs to increase income for women.

Ms. Ninh, a worker of the craft village, said: "For many years, we have been instructed by the centre for research, connection and development of handicraft (Craft Link) in Hanoi to create diverse products for sale in the local market as well as in northern Ha Giang and Lao Cai provinces, and exports to the Europe.”

In 2019, the rice wine making village in La Pan Tan commune was recognised. La Pan Tan Mong ethnic people have developed this trade over the past five years, bringing high economic benefits.

The same year, panpipe making in Nam Khat, Pung Luong, and Mo De communes, along with the forging and casting trade in Nam Khat, Che Cu Nha, De Xu Phinh, and Kim Noi were recognised as traditional crafts.

This has helped these craft villages develop services and tourism in addition to creating unique products.

Luong Thi Xuyen, Vice Chairwoman of the People’s Committee of Mu Cang Chai district, said the locality will intensify communications and promotion of products on social media.

It will also upgrade material facilities and encourage locals to actively produce La Pan Tan rice wine, and brocade patterns to make clothes and souvenirs for sale, she added.
